Indies Introduce


  • Fox & I: An Uncommon Friendship, Catherine Raven
    Spiegel & Grau, 9781954118003, July 6, 2021 (Non-Fiction)

    “How does one observe without objectifying? Systematize without soullessness? Empathize without sentimentality? Raven's elegantly self-deprecating struggle to synthesize the logical and the ludicrous is a gift to anyone who ever balked at assigning meaning to earth's sublimity.”

    Amanda Qassar, Warwick’s, La Jolla, CA

    “Reading Fox & I was like sneaking my father’s worn copy of Sand County Almanac out to my childhood treehouse all over again. Raven fills her pages with wilderness, introspection, and perfect literary nuggets. A book about books, a book about nature, a book about self discovery, a book about what we can learn if we are paying attention, and a book about what we learn when we let ourselves become distracted.”

    Carrie Koepke, Skylark Bookshop, Columbia, MO

    “Read this book for the story of Fox, stay for the story of the author and how we all are nature. An examination of our relationships with other animals, plants, each other, and the world, Fox & I is a beautifully-written, thoughtful blend of memoir and nature writing that will inform and inspire and make you feel.”

    -Ariana Paliobagis, Country Bookshelf, Bozeman, MT


    “This is a perfectly lovely story about the relationship between humans, animals, and nature. It is the perfect book to escape into over a weekend, and reading it outdoors just enhances the experience.”

    Olivia Edmunds-Diez, Boulder Book Store, Boulder, CO
